Jægersborg Deer Park

UNESCO Par force hunting landscape

The Jaegersborg Deer Park is a natural resort with forests, small lakes and open landscapes located in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen. More than 2000 free-range deer inhabit the park and you will see them graze on your way through the park. Be sure to visit The Hermitage hunting lodge and enjoy the view of the Sound to Sweden.

To enter the Jaegersborg Deer Park, you have to find one of the characteristic red gates. Klampenborg gate is the most used and is located close to Klampenborg Station. In this part of the park, you can go for a ride in a horse-drawn carriage and enjoy stunning views of the forest. The Deer Park is popular among Copenhageners and local residents who use it for walking, running and cycling. Bring a picnic lunch and a blanket and enjoy a day in the forest.

In 2015, the Deer Park was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the par force landscape was once used for hunting by the Danish Royal Family. Today, you’ll still see how the park’s trails are linked in in star-shaped trail systems that once gave the hunters a better view of the dogs movements. As you move around the park, be sure to make your way past the Hermitage hunting lodge, located in the heart of the park with great views of The Sound to Sweden.
